Program Delivery

Dynamic and Interactive Programs Delivered to Suit Your Preferred Learning Style

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, your professors will be with you every step of the way, and you’ll have lots of opportunities to interact with your classmates from across Canada and around the world.

Hands-on / practical learning experiences

Where required, you will take part in hands-on learning in our labs to apply your knowledge to real-world situations. Depending on your program, you may also complete a capstone project (a major project that allows students to demonstrate their learning), placement, or co-op that will give you the chance to grow your skills in a workplace setting.

Learning formats

Here are some of the learning formats we offer:

Definition You’ll See in Your Course Outline

Course is delivered through asynchronous** teaching.

What This Means

Your professor will share learning resources and activities with you and your classmates in various ways (typically in your Moodle course shell). Your professor will provide regular opportunities for you to ask questions and request clarification. You, your classmates, and your professor are not necessarily using the learning tools at the same time.

Definition You’ll See in Your Course Outline

Course combines scheduled synchronous* and unscheduled asynchronous** teaching.

What This Means

Often referred to as blended learning, hybrid courses include both real-time learning with your professor and classmates and online learning activities.

Definition You’ll See in Your Course Outline

Course includes both synchronous* and asynchronous** learning and you can move between both components seamlessly.

What This Means

A form of hybrid learning that gives you the option of joining classes in real-time, or learning asynchronously or doing both. Students can change their mode of learning weekly or by topic, according to need or preference.

Definition You’ll See in Your Course Outline

Course is delivered through scheduled synchronous teaching that may be face-to-face and/or virtual.

What This Means

Your course runs on a specific date and time, and your professor engages with you and your classmates live and in real-time.

Theory-based courses will be delivered virtually and you will not be required to come on campus. On your timetable, these will be indicated with the room number VIRT. In the case of labs, you will be on campus and in the room specified on your timetable.

* Synchronous Teaching and Learning: A faculty member (your professor) is engaged with you and your classmates teaching and learning at the same time, i.e. in real time. Your courses / labs are scheduled at a pre-determined day and time.

** Asynchronous Teaching and Learning: Your professor shares learning resources and activities with you and your classmates in a flexible way (typically in your Moodle course shell). Your professor confirms the regular times and channels for you to ask questions and request clarification. You, your classmates, and your professor are not necessarily using the Moodle shell or other tools at exactly the same time.

Note: Some of our programs cannot be delivered in every learning format that is listed. Please check our website or email info@cambriancollege.ca to see if the program you’re interested in can be delivered in your preferred format.
